It's alright. Great with food (Chinese food) but would never buy a six pack of the stuff. It's got a funky taste to it...not bad just funky.

Typical lager appearance. Fairly pale. Some lacing but not a lot

Very faint aroma. Grainy and a little bit grassy.

Flavour is mild. There are appleskin notes and grain tastes here. There's a hint of German pils style hops but it's extrememly faint. There's a bit of a nutty flavour here too. This beer does have some individual characteristics and is enjoyable to drink without having strong flavours.

Overall, a rather mild but refreshing and drinkable lager with no off notes .

73/100

Appearance – Very pale with almost no head from the outset. Heavy carbonation

Smell – The smell is similar to any Lager in the same style although there is more evidence of water in this and although I don’t want to be mean I can only describe this as boring.

Taste – grain and water. There is not much in the way of hops flavour here

Mouthfeel – Very thin with a tiny bit of effervescent tingle.

Over all – I hate to be mean and if I compare this to other beers in the same style it is not the worst in the world. If you like a Budweiser then this is a better brew, I think. If you like Ales or Bitters then give this one a wide berth. For what it is trying to be it does the job, I just don’t like what it is trying to be. My final score is based on the fact this beer is doing what it set out to do but what it is trying to be is not interesting or even difficult to do, however there are worse beers in this style.
